Again you’re cherry picking things and not tackling the subject in its complex entirety.
Look, I've already said - yes, it is idealism. You seem to think idealism is rubbish. I have a different view. You might as well say that there's no point in aspiring to anything better or different, because such things always start with an ideal of something better.
Well, I believe that transparency would have prevented WWII from happening at in the first place, so for me your argument about D-Day is irrelevant.
What is wrong with people who are paid to represent the people sharing their frank opinions with the people?
This is frankly silly, the transparency being discussed here is government transparency - not personal details, PIN numbers, etc.
No, actually, I believe the current matrix goes against human nature, and what we need is something which accords with it.
As long as you aren't aware you are in a matrix, you won't be able to see outside of it...and that's why we can't have a profitable discussion about this.
If everybody was open to that, we would all know what we should, as far as stocks, bonds, and finance in general. If things were the way I'm saying, no body would be taken down off guard unless they aren't paying attention.
Hmm i think you have what i said with somthing else because what i said has no bearing on any trading at all ?
TPTB created this confusion,fear,did they not?
I said nothing about utopia ,you just assumed , i never once said there wouldn,t be bad,or people doing wrong ,or everyone keeping inline
I am not talking we need to see privet emails from the POTUS,congress.I am talking anything that effects the public should be made public,
But if china is going to (((secretely ))) start buying all bottle water to control the market ,And Tells some friend in the usa ,and some congressmen sees the memo !You truly feel that that info still needs to be kept secrete?
Who the hell are you , to decide for anyone on this planet what they should read,what they should see,what they should wear,what they should believe ,Who are you?
This is what i think to this ,Really?? That really should go without saying
(("What about less clear cut examples where life may not be directly on the line? For example should the details of trade negotiations be public knowledge regardless of whether it gives competitors an advantage? "))
I believe ,you know my answer,that is ...yes. Is fair trade not fair trade?? How can it be fair trade if all variables are not the same??
The auction price ,as far what you are willing to pay is privet,quit mixing the 2 things,
what some one is willing to pay is privet,the info about the item being bought/sold , should be out in the open .do you not agree?
Sensitive issues ,Really get a friggin grip ,grow a friggin pair, talk like adults ,agree to disagree,no ones opinion is better then anyone else. If you have a problem with some one and cant work it out move to the next guy and try to work it out with them,if ect,rinse and repeat.Or simply dont hang around them /deal with them. No one should be forced to be friends , but should respect each others lives should they not?
What some one thinks is completely worthless, it dose nothing, only their actions do .If country A says we really dont like country B dose it really friggin matter as long as country A dosnt attack country B
